Great place to grab seafood. A pleasant walk along the pier and then sit out over the ocean while enjoying a beer and some fish-n-chips. Good staff and fair prices.

One of our favorites for informal dining. The prices are within limits. Seating is very limited. Can be cold, especially in the late afternoon.

Located on the end of the Imperial Beach Pier. Great sunset views. The food is good, but the view is better. The fish and chips were good. Currently no alcohol license.

my friend and I were relaxing on the beach and decided to see the view from the end of the pier and enjoy lunch too. We both had the mahi mahi tacos. Delicious!

We had lunch here. Mostly deep fried items. Tacos had the best taste of what we ordered. Reasonably priced. Great view. Friendly service.
